Fusion.... as Fashion !! Phase 3

I continue where I stopped last time... The textures -


Satin is a cloth that typically has a glossy surface. A Satin woven fabric tends to have a high luster due to the high number of floats on the fabric.

Satin weavers are used commonly in apparel goods such as evening wear and fine clothing and nightgowns.


Leather is a material made through the tanning of hides pelts and skins of animal. Primarily cow’s leather is a very important clothing material and its other uses are legion, together with wool. Leather clothing is been used from the very ancient technology.

Warsted Wool:

Warsted wool is the most common material for suits and is by for the best choice for the suit.


Spandex or elastics is a synthetic fibre known for its exceptional elasticity stretch ability), it is stronger and more durable than rubber, it is major non-synthetic competitor.
It is light in weight, soft smooth and supple, its having the abrasion resistant, no static or pilling problems.


Silk is warmer, and it is smooth and has elasticity. It is good luster.

Tie & Dye:

Tie and Die is one such resist dyeing process, which produces unique and unusual designs. Tie and Dye is the oldest form of imparting surface design onto cloth.

I would like to end the textures here. I am planning to change the tempo from now. It has started seeming a bit boring to me too. I would be posting my designs and their descriptions from the next post. So keep a watch for the next one...

Hey thanks for the overwhelming response to all the readers, in my first post itself. I was not able to post my second one due to some problems at the back end. However as promised here I go with the next phase - - -

Let's talk about the color board in this post, I mean the colors and its link to the fashion. I will not talk about all the colors though but have listed some very regularly used ones -

Fusion.... as Fashion !!

The word fusion is the act of blending or the state of being blended throughout. Fusion of fashion is an abstract concept, when it relates to clothing, it totally takes a different outlook. It starts as a concept and ends as a product.

Fusion of fashion is not just confined to a particular creed or individual, it always speaks about a crew of creative minds, thus perceptions towards various aspects and these aesthetic needs.

Fusion of fashion is inspired from the rich Indian culture and blend of western friends.

Inspiration is the journey of imagination and is to understand how fashion has traveled all the way from the generation to the present era. This is a very systematic process of leaving which includes lot of efforts and to know what existed previously.

Indians are the people who are logical, creative aesthetic towards the elements in nature, so the Indian culture is valuable, not merely as beautiful heritage but because we need to live with them, touch them, feel them, use their creativity and have intimate relationship with them. This would lead our life and the created fashion and style to be enriched by their grace.

Sorry guys, this post is getting way to long for my taste. I will have to break it down into sections. That’s it for now. I’ll post more in detail about it tomorrow or so. I’ll talk about colors and cloth textures. I will also post my designs related to colors and textures I discuss…
